I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

Victoria Square Adelaide has become a popular location for concerts and other events following its multi million dollar redevelopment. While many people whinged about the cost of the renovations at first, it's now paying dividends.
New lawns and seating, a shiny new fountain that kids love to play in, and shaded areas for sitting and enjoying lunch have given Victoria Square a whole new lease of life which city workers have been happy to take advantage of. The City of Adelaide has been actively promoting many free events in the square, and Music in the Square is their latest - part of the Live Music Action Plan in Adelaide.
Music in the Square is a series of free concerts in Tarntanyangga at lunchtimes. Held on five Thursdays during November and December, the live music performances are being curated by Music SA. The program is showcasing emerging and well known SA performers, with two artists performing at each of the free concerts.
Most of the live music performances will last for 2-3 songs, then the other artist will play, and continue alternating during the two hour concert. That way there is a chance to hear both artists even if you only have a short lunch.
Enjoy Lunch From a Food Truck With Live Music in Adelaide
Of course as the free events are being held at lunchtime, you may have your mind set on food as much as on live music. With the Central Market and the Gouger Street food strip nearby there is plenty of choice. But I will be counting on a few of your favourite food trucks from Fork on the Road showing up. Food trucks like Cheesy Street, Wienerbago, and Chimichurri Grill are all regulars around the city, but it could be any one of the others too. It's pot luck on the day.
Here's the event schedule for Music in the Square:
